What can I say? Great Lakes Builders saved our 100-year old Victorian house by shoring it up and replacing the termite-damaged beams, posts and other framing! The termite damage was so extensive that we were moments away from complete structural failure of the property. The workers were professional, courteous, punctual, and FAST!

We were referred to Great Lakes Builders for an important structural project with a very strict timetable. We had to have a contractor that we could rely on to complete the work correctly, in a professional manner, with a concern for safety, on time and within budget. We found this in Great Lakes Builders. After using them for structural repairs on two of the buildings we manage, we feel confident in recommending Great Lakes Builders.
